On July 6-7, 2021, Lowell Waite was invited to participate in a core workshop at the offices of Scout Energy Partners. Scout is a private energy producer located in north Dallas, focusing on the acquisition, operation, and growth of upstream and midstream energy assets. The core workshop was organized and lead by Scout geologist Travis Moreland, with assistance from Scout geologist Alex Gonzalez (who is currently a UTD Geoscience graduate student).
The workshop included the viewing of a carbonate core from the Eastern Shelf, a shale core from the Ft. Worth Basin, and a terrigenous clastic core from the Texas panhandle. The event was attended by several members from Scout management, engineers, geologists, land personnel, accountants, staff, as well as several summer interns. Emphasis was placed on the importance of obtaining core for petroleum system analysis and the interpretation of depositional environments to construct predictive geologic models.
We thank Scout Energy Partners for the opportunity to participate in this event!
